Vegan Chorizo Burritos
I must apologize in advance if this makes way more than 6 burritos. I'm estimating as when I've made this I've only made one or two burritos and then had plenty of leftovers. By the way, this is my own recipe which is why I do not have any nutritional info. Feel free to change up the veggies any way you like. I used pre-packaged cabbage and green beans because those are two vegetables I hate to prepare. Also, feel free to use pre-sliced peppers and onions from the grocery salad bar. Just avoid using frozen as they tend to get soggy.
Also, feel free to go full carnivore and use real Spanish chorizo or Portuguese chourico.

1Remove the soy chorizo from it's plastic casing (it will crumble at this point---that is fine). Set it aside.

3Add the garlic and the sausage, stirring to break up the sausage and incorporate the flavors.
